Default upgrading to 5.1.* : what to change in ioftpd.ini

from 4.* to 5.*   (keeping users & groups)

U will need to reinstall all scripts, since most of them use different techniques (like shmem) or some commands have changed. U can however keep your users & groups, what is probably most important

1. Backup the 3 dirs \users\ and \groups\ and \etc\
2. Install new ioFTPD 5
3. Put the dirs \users\ and \groups\ and \etc\ back from your backup.
Make sure u keep the new \etc\Host.Rules file from ioFTPD 5
4. Go to http://www.ioftpd.com/passwdconv/
- paste your \etc\passwd file there to convert it, then rename it to \etc\UserIdTable
- paste your \etc\group file there to convert it, then rename it to \etc\GroupIdTable
5. config your new ioFTPD 5 (ioftpd.ini, host.rules, ...)

__________________________________________________

from 5.0.* to 5.1.*

This applies to sections [scripts] [events] [sheduler] [pre] [post] in ioFTPD.ini
(basically everywhere u run an external script)


old ioftpd 5.0.* (and 4.*)

[Events]
OnUploadComplete = ..\scripts\ioZS\ioZS.exe Upload
OnUploadComplete = ..\scripts\nfourl.itcl
[Post]
dele = ..\scripts\ioZS\ioZS.exe Delete
[Scripts]
traffic = ..\scripts\ioGroups.exe sitestats
myinfo = %..\scripts\ioGroups.exe userinfo %[$user]


new ioftpd 5.1.*

[Events]
OnUploadComplete = EXEC ..\scripts\ioZS\ioZS.exe Upload
OnUploadComplete = TCL ..\scripts\nfourl.itcl
[Post]
dele = EXEC ..\scripts\ioZS\ioZS.exe Delete
[Scripts]
traffic = EXEC ..\scripts\ioGroups.exe sitestats
myinfo = %EXEC ..\scripts\ioGroups.exe userinfo %[$user]

Basically, u put EXEC infront of all executable scripts (exe bat ...), and TCL infront of itcl scripts. Note that % goes infront of the EXEC/TCL. Message files and aliasses remain unchanged:
HELP = !..\help\help.msg
RHS = @config rehash

Also in message files, using the %[execute(..)] cookie:
%[execute(EXEC D:\ioftpd\scripts\blabla.exe Arguments)]

Default 5.1.7 - 5.1.8

1. Replace ioFTPD.exe

2. Open ioFTPD.ini and replace:
Worker_Thread_Min = 10 # Minimum amount of worker threads
Worker_Thread_Max = 10 # Maximum amount

with:
Worker_Thread_Count = 10 # Number of worker threads

Default 5.1.17 - 5.2.2

Wohooo!! We now have B/W limitting
Only downside is another largish upgrade job
Here we go.

Open ioFTPD.ini and change the following:
1. Under [Device Name] (the listing for the device in device section, default is [ANY]) add the lines:
Global_Inbound_bandwidth = 100 # Inbound bandwidth in kb/sec
Global_Outbound_bandwidth = 100 # Outbound bandwidth in kb/sec

2. Under [Network] add the line:
Scheduler_Update_Speed = NORMAL # Socket scheduler update speed (HIGH/NORMAL/LOW/DISABLED)

3. Under [Change-Permissions]
add the following:
speedlimit = 1GM

Change the .exe

And we're done, go limit those leechers

(ini update is for 5.1.11 - 5.2.0, rest just .exe updates.)

Default 5.2.2 - 5.2.3

1. Open ioFTPD.ini: Change your default device (for sake of demonstration will use [FTP-Data] as d1 did). Change Inbound_bandwidth and Outbound_bandwidth to Global_Inbound_bandwidth and Global_Outbound_bandwidth.

Steps 2,3 are optional and only useful if you want to cap control channel speeds and protect from DoS attacks.

2. Add a new device called [FTP-Listen] (or whatever) with the following settings:
[FTP-Listen]
Host = (same host as FTP-Data)
Global_Inbound_bandwidth = 10 #limit overall speeds
Global_Outbound_bandwidth = 10 #limit overall speeds
Client_Inbound_bandwidth = 2 #limit per user speeds
Client_Outbound_bandwidth = 5 #limit per user speeds

3. [FTP-Service] (or whatever is your ftp service name)
...
Device_Name = FTP-Listen
Data_Devices = FTP-Data

4. Change the exe.

Now thats not the only config, not by a long way from looks of it, but thats prolly what I'll be using and looks like most straight forward.
Must admit though, dont wanna say this does work till I've tried it and too busy to update my sites atm, so if anyone sees something wrong drop a reply.

/edit: just updated my sites and seems to work anyways

Default 5.2.6 to 5.2.14u or 5.2.15r

Upgrade .exe only.

Or get full package if you want to develop scripts (the headers have changed).

5.3.9 -> 5.4.3:
alot of changes in the ioftpd.ini file so i think it's best to completely reconfigure the default ini file

Gone: [ioFTPD]
New: [Threads] & [File] & [Ftp] & [Telnet]
Change: [Pre] becomes [FTP_Pre-Command_Events]
Change: [Post] becomes [FTP_Post-Command_Events]
Change: [Scripts] becomes [FTP_Custom_Commands]
New: [Telnet_Binaries]
Change: [Ftp-Permissions] becomes [FTP_Command_Permissions]
Change: [Ftp-SITE-Permissions] becomes [FTP_SITE_Permissions]
Change: [Telnet-Permissions] becomes [Telnet_Command_Permissions]
New: [Telnet_Binary_Permissions]
Change: [Http-Permissions] becomes [Http_Permissions]

also some (all?) message files changed, the most questions are asked about this one:
\text\ftp\stat.msg becomes \text\ftp\TransferComplete

Replace those events:

;OnFtpNewDir =
;OnFtpDelDir =
;OnFtpLogIn =

by

;OnNewDir =
;OnDelDir =
;OnLogIn =

and add those two:
;OnServiceStart =
;OnServiceStop =

Note: The new INI shows [Change_Permissions], but you need to change it to [Change-Permissions] for it to work!
If you don't, everyone will be able to use all commands! (Only applies for u version. Newer r versions are fixed.)

Also, make sure Messages = ..\text\ftp is un-commented in your services, as there is no default value anymore.
